Will County offers holiday lights recycling options

Will County offers an environmentally friendly way to dispose of holiday lights that have lost their cheer.

String lights are taken at all permanent electronic recycling centers, but through Jan. 31 they also will be collected at these three locations: Will County Office Building, 302 N. Chicago St.; Will County Land Use Department, 58 E. Clinton St., Joliet; and Sunny Hill Nursing Home of Will County, 421 Doris Ave., according to a news release from the county.

Marta Keane, Recycling Program specialist with the Will County Land Use Department’s Resource Recovery and Energy Division, said not all lights may be accepted.  

“Do not bring incandescent, CFL or fluorescent lamps. The CFL and fluorescent lights are accepted as part of Household Hazardous Waste Collection events. Never place any of these items in curbside recycling programs,” Keane said.

Visit willcountygreen.com for information. All sites will be closed Christmas and New Year’s Day.
